dc.description.abstractThis study examined the degree of detectable hemolysis in- blood specimens _as-pirated with needles'p~ :small and 1.arge bore_ size. A quasiexperimental design was used to test the resea;ch hypothesis that blood . specimens. aspira~ed_~tth a 22~gauge_needle will have a higher degree of -detectable-hemolysis than blood specimens asp:irated .with a 20-gauge needle. Data collectionconsisted of aspirating from each subject - (n=31) one blood-·speci~en--wi-th a 22-gauge-needle and-one-:.blood specimen·: _ _, . ,.,. : . . . . ' . . with a 20~gauge ·needle~- ..
